It was a wonderful surprise running into Senator John McCain and his son, John McCain IV, known as Jack, outside of Johnny's Half Shell. Senator McCain looked dapper in his light blue shirt and orange tie. Jack sported a more casual look in an anti-war tee and jeans. With his good looks, we bet he looks good in just about everything. And to top it all off, they both couldn't have been nicer.


The men of the South have always been noted for their distinguishable style and dress. Congressman Rodney Alexander, of Louisiana, and Congressman John Barrow, of Georgia, did not disappoint. Love those good ol' boys!

Jennifer Fisher, of the American Dental Association, was spotted at the new rooftop bar at the W hotel. We loved her black and white Muse dress, complimented by her burgundy Christian Loubouin heels and ever so classic classic Louis Vuitton handbag. Now, that's sophistication!

As the temperature rises, the dress code on the Hill becomes more relaxed. Laura Donahoe, of Van Scoyoc Associates, was seen leaving the Russell Senate Office Building wearing a trendy printed Craig Taylor Inc. shirt dress. Kathy Marshall, interning with the Department of Justice, was found at 1600 Penn wearing hip white pants and a flirty ruffled top, creating a light and breezy feel.

Once upon a time, on a big hill where very important decisions are made, there was a tale of two girls. One girl was a very good dresser and one girl was very bad. The good dresser, Maggie Juliand, a Legislative Assistant for Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter, was wearing a feminine black and white sun dress with an adorable matching black cardigan and neutral sandals. She was not only good for her sense of style, but for her ability for find a bargain. The dress was found at Marshall's for under $50.

The bad dresser on the other hand, who will remain nameless, had no style. Where to begin? Perhaps we will start from top to bottom- a plain black mock-turtleneck, tucked into a dull and drab tight charcoal skirt, finished off with a pair of tall black winter boots. We thought is was July, not the end of February???

The best accessory for men this summer is the tie. Vibrant colors add a pop to those dark suits. David Krone, Senator Reid's Chief of Staff, Jake Perry, also from Senator Reid's office, Michael Meadow, The Architect of the Capitol, and Ted Okon, of Community Oncology Alliance...each tie is better than the next.
